If you are like most ladies, you’ve had a rough idea of how your bridal gown should look like since you were young. And although this aspiration may have evolved as you grew up, the desire to look like a princess remains alive. And so, you have to carefully choose a gown that will make your dream a reality.
Abigail Bridal– one of Kenya’s most trusted bridal boutiques- suggests a few serious considerations that you have to make before you go shopping for your bridal gown.
Confer with a Qualified Bridal Consultant
A bridal expert such as Abigail Bridal knows which bridal gown style suits which bride, and so they will listen to your concerns and advise you accordingly. And even as you try on different gowns, a bridal consultant will help you exclude silhouettes, colors and styles that don’t work well for you. Such an expert has already handled brides with all kinds of preferences and knows what to do to find you the perfect wedding dress.
Keep In Mind Traditions and Religious Beliefs
Some traditional African cultures dictate specific wedding dresses for brides while some religious communities have stringent rules on what a bride should wear on her wedding day. You therefore need to consider such beliefs before you buy your bridal gown. Most of us Africans still believe that a wedding is a community affair and as such certain traditions have to be followed.
Limit Your Advisors
It’s good to seek other people’s opinions on the type of bridal gown to buy, but it’s going to be confusing if the advisors are too many. Nobody understands your taste and style better than you do; not even your mother, sister, or best friend. The best thing is to seek advice from a qualified bridal gown consultant such as Abigail Bridal.
Know Your Preferred Gown Features and Accessories
For a complete bridal look, you require special gown features and bridal accessories such as beadwork, neckline, train and other adornments. If these are not available, you can arrange with the gown vendor for gown alterations. You also must choose accessories that are compatible with your bridal gown.
